    A peculiar product, that reaches a sufficient level of quality if you look at the strategic factor.

    A modest, modern attempt at a hacking sim that unfortunately doesn't capture the magic of Introverion's classic. [Nov 2011, p.68]

    I tried very hard to like this game. It's a slow-paced strategy, which I tend to like, but this game does everything wrong. I completed the tutorial level with no issues, then I found the second level impossible to beat, even on Easy. The tutorial is barely there, and help system points you to the non-existant game manual. The AI killed me several times, and when I tried to avoid invoking their wrath, one of the objective servers disappeared from the map in what I can only assume is a game-breaking bug. Of the two hours I played, almost all of that time was spent waiting for cooldown timers to reset. This game makes you wait a very long time for everything.

    Avoid this game. Only the most hardcore of strategy enthusiasts will find anything of value here.

    This game is horrible. I never regretted buying a game as much as this.

    No use to choose the level of difficulty. On easy, the game is already unplayable! Tedious and repetitive can also be used to describe the game.

    I agree with the other reviews. This game is very bad indeed!!!

    The tutorial finishes by getting you to watch a remote AI attack your server without explaining what is needed to protect yourself against it.

    The second level has you attempting to break into a bank to obtain funds. You do this through the same tools as before and a new voice print tool (exactly like to DOS tool but only four sliders). This also reveals why the tutorial doesn't tell you how to protect against AI attacks - you can't; they simply keep chipping away at your system until either they are destroyed or you destroy them (hope you didn't need them later on the mission).

    The AI opponents are a joke - things that normally make a hacking game fun such as breaking a system, logging out before a trace etc don't apply to them. The moment you even go near their system (directly or via a bounced link) they know exactly who you are and will start attacking. You don't get to cover your tracks, you don't even get to make it harder for them - they are omniscient).

    Upgrading your system is a simple spend $5,000 to buy a +1 to either firewall, cpu or integrity no decisions or choices.

    Even transferring money is a joke, quick question in real life a person needs $4,000 you have an account balance of $25,000 so how much would you transfer to them? If you answered $25,000 then welcome to the world of Hacker Evolution : Duality. This game has reduced hacking to a couple of overly simple mini-games that require a couple of mouse clicks (or none in the case of the firewall hacking - other than the click to select the firewall button that is) with long waits in between while things recharge or satellites spin to the correct angle (they only spin clockwise as well so you just have to hope they weren't just past the required angle...)

    Very frustrating, very difficult and without any time to think or plan or even try your own approaches, if the mission was expecting you to go for an AI controlled system then that is what is required, don't consider avoiding it (which quite frankly I would say is the reasonable option - given a choice between a slow hack against a dumb, unresponsive system or angering an all knowing AI opponent)

    The only redeeming thing about this game is the fact I only wasted £5 on it in a steam sale.
